What $650,000 Buys You in DC: Figure 1

Open Two-Level Unit in 16th Street Row House

Located on the upper levels of a 16th Street townhouse between Q and Church Street, this 1,120 square-foot condo is spacious by two-bedroom standards in DC, and its location on one of the city’s main avenues puts it within strolling distance of both the 14th Street Corridor and Dupont Circle. The second bedroom is fairly small, working better as an office or nursery, but the master bedroom suite has a large bathroom and access to a balcony. Parking is taken care of for one year; after that there is a rental fee.

  • Price: $655,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,120

Modern Two-Bedroom Condo in Capitol Hill

Located in The Iridium, a condo building on the edge of Capitol Hill built in 2008, this two-bedroom unit has huge windows and right angles everywhere that give it a very modern, contemporary feel. The main living area has a small, “European-style” kitchen, a dining area and a living room whose floor-to-ceiling windows open up to a balcony. The unit, which is the lowest-priced property featured today, comes with storage and parking.

White Picket Fence Living in Arlington

While the home itself might not be all that large, this Arlington colonial sits on a large lot that has a huge backyard bounded by that quintessential suburban staple: the white picket fence. Everything has been updated, so the kitchen, bathrooms, basement and plumbing systems are all in very good condition. In addition to the fence, the fact that the home sits within the boundaries of the Arlington county public school system makes it a fairly family-friendly option.
